COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium bodied American style IPA has an alluring golden glow and beautifully blends three strains of hops. While strong citrus notes ambush your taste buds halfway through the palate, the beer finishes very crisp and dry.

Draft at Sweetwaters Burlington. Pours a light coppery color with a small white head. Nose is fresh floral hops with a crisp biscuity backbone. Palate is light, crisp and refreshing. Flavors of floral hops, biscuits. Finishes clean with a light bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PhatB420 (641) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 29, 2014
Growler from brewery into a large stemmed tulip glass. Pours a dark hazy, rusted bronze orange. Lacing is medium, plentiful, and soft. Sticks all over, and expands. Aroma is fresh pine, soft cedar, hoppy floral exchanges, and more hops. Taste is piney, hoppy, earthy, fresh, and enjoyable. A most definite example of the style, bitter on the tounge, and in the aftertaste, but the hop presence keeps one content. Vermont beer at its best.

Berard (328) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Growler. Pours murky brown with a thin head that dissipates. Nice hop aroma over light carbonation. This is a solid single ipa. Some complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Braudog (5873) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Draft/growler from the brewery. Hazy, light orange. Decent aromatics of citrus and pine. Drinks with a creamsicle appeal, light in body but full in flavor. Yummy. (#5783, 10/9/2014)

DYCSoccer17 (3345) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 4, 2014
16oz sample on tap at Burlington International Airport. The aroma is full of resiny pine. Tons of pine in the nose with a little sweetness present, too. Moderately hazy copper color. Nice creamy off-yellow head present. Starts with a chewy, husky, resinous flavor. Quite a bit of pine and earthy hops come through later on, with a dry, fairly bitter finish. A decent IPA...Really spot on for an East Coast version.

Leighton (11631) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2014
Keg at The Reservoir - Waterbury, VT. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds pale citrus fruits, pale bread, some anise, pine needles. Medium sweet flavor with some lightly dried citrus, in particular tangerine and grapefruit, with pale bready malts beneath. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly resinous on the finish with further pale malt sweetness, low bitterness, nicely juicy and citrusy hops. Very, very well balanced. Solid.
